This year another team called Arizona came to play against the Fireballs, Infernos and the San Antonio Straps. Arizona was awesome! They even beat San Antonio with ease. Which was the first game in the tournament. The next game was the Fireballs verses the Infernos. My team (the Infernos) beat the Fireballs but I didn't score a goal. Then my team played against Arizona Heat Elite and they destroyed us! We didn't get a single goal! The coach of their team said that the reason they got so good is because they played harder teams than they were. Which it totally made sense to me. After that we had a good two hour break until the next game. My dad gave me a beef jerky to hold me over till dinner time. The next game l played was San Antonio. My team lost but I was the only Houston player to score on San Antonio! Which is pretty cool! We lost because we were tired of playing. The next day the San Antonio team forfeited because one of their registered team members couldn't play and they had to use a sub (which was registered). My team played against Arizona again to see which team would be the champion. But like the first time, my team got dominated! I was still happy we at least scored one goal. It was like David vs. Goliah!
Here is a message from our team Manager...Diane Murrell
I am so impressed with our two teams, you fought long and hard and well against tremendous odds on both Saturday and Sunday. I saw growth in each person's character, your attitude, your persistence and your refusal to give in - such mental toughness. I saw growth in your team work and love how you stuck together both on and off the court. I see a strong sense of unity in two solid teams. You fought some USPSA giants in this tournament Arizona Heat Elite and you made every coach and parent proud to say we belong to the Fireballs and the Inferno. The score was lower than this time last year against STRAPs, you scored a goal against Arizona, (who I think were second in one fo the biggest conference cups). You played without a key player (Allie you were missed), you played despite the distraction of always needing to charge your chair. You got up early, you got yourselves here in the rain on time, and you showed up on court and learned what a conference team looks like by playing against one of the very best in the US. And that's our goal to become a conference team. Let's look forward to the new year, we have learned so much this weekend and are excited to roll out new ideas to help us all move forward and be a better me, a better you and a better us, 2017. Congratulations on a well fought weekend. See y'all at the Christmas party next week and our time to celebrate Coach Lauren and Jonathan.
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
